So Bridgit and I were talking, and she was explaining how Western civilization views everything so linearly (everything has a beginning and an ending point) when everything natural in our world is a cycle. We have the carbon cycle, the water cycle, the food chain (aka cycle come on darn scientists). Everything is recycled, and therefore we always have a never ending source.
The cool part is…religion is ALSO a cycle. Jesus says he is the alpha and the omega, he is the beginning and the end. Cool thing is, when the beginning and the end are the same…it’s a circle. (omg yay math) Humans fears death because it appears to be the end of living. But when you realize that life hasn’t really ended, and it’s just another depth of living, death isn’t scary anymore. Baaam. God does it again.
